World of Hyatt is back with a big promotion as it continues to roll out benefits with its partnership with American Airlines.

Targeted World of Hyatt members are getting emails with a registration link for the promotion. Once enrolled, members get three American Airlines miles for each dollar they spend at World of Hyatt brands. Usually, Hyatt elites earn one mile for each dollar spent.

Promotion details

With this promotion, targeted members can earn 3x American Airlines miles per dollar spent with World of Hyatt. Members must register by Oct. 31, 2020 to earn the bonus.

Registration appears to be pretty simple: Click on the register now button in the email, and book stays between Sept. 22 and Dec. 31 of this year.

It’s not clear how widespread the offer is, but lots of folks on the TPG staff got the email — some with highest-tier “Globalist” status, and some like me, lowly “Discoverist” members.

If you didn’t get the email, enter your World of Hyatt membership number on this page to check if you’re targeted.

Even if you aren’t targeted, you should link your Hyatt and AA accounts.

You’ll remember Hyatt previously awarded American Airlines Executive Platinum status to some of its top-tier Globalist members. American Airlines Concierge Key members (the top tier in AA’s program) get automatic Hyatt Globalist status, so the benefits do go both ways.

Hyatt and American Airlines joined forces back in March, giving elite members of World of Hyatt and American AAdvantage reciprocal benefits as an incentive to do business with the partners.

Bottom line

Even if you don’t have any upcoming trips planned, there’s no harm in registering as it only takes one click to do so. Two months of triple points sounds pretty good to me.

And for more benefits, you might think about getting the World of Hyatt Credit Card. In addition to the current welcome bonus, you’d also enjoy automatic Discoverist status. That gives you one World of Hyatt point for every dollar you spend on American flights through this partnership.
